HUNDREDS of pounds were raised when the local MP held a coffee morning for a good cause recently.

Mr Luke Graham, who represents Ochil and South Perthshire in Westminster, organised the event at his Crieff office in aid of Macmillan.

It was a part of the charity’s annual fundraising initiative, the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.

The MP welcomed constituents for cake and a cuppa as well as a raffle, netting £400 for the cancer support organisation.

Following the event, Mr Graham said: “It was great to open up the constituency office and see so many people coming down to support this worthy charity.

“We managed to raise over £400 and this will go towards funding Macmillan as they support those battling cancer in our constituency and further afield.”
